Micheal Sheen comes across as Austin Powers occasionally, and Langella just doesn't look like Nixon, but for a movie so dependent on acting ability, 'Frost/Nixon' delivers. One has to be careful when dealing with a Ron Howard movie dealing with politics, especially about a Republican, and sure enough Nixon does come off being given more sympathy than he deserves. But then Frost can hardly be said to be far removed from his adversary, as one particular scene emphasises. And we do get shoes 'thrown' at a president. Overall nothing we haven't seen before, but intelligent and satisfying.
